Happy Birthday little boy! I just love the nautical theme we worked with... And he quite enjoyed eating his cake!

Winter 2016...

So many darling little girls born this Winter! Here is one of these little sweeties... born to a family with 4 boys, her arrival was pretty exciting! Her mama loves wrap baby carriers, and this is a favorite which will hold a lot of baby-wearing memories! So we incorporated these special pieces of fabric in some shots.

Expecting Mamas - 2016

August days, with their long golden evenings are so lovely for photography... Though I know it's not fun to be due in this heat, we still had a lot of fun getting these shots...
